Here's an oldie-but-goodie from our genius President:

Quote
"This is a tough hurricane," he said in front of the White House, "one of the wettest we’ve ever seen from the standpoint of water."

I swear, you can't make this stuff up.  ;D

Of course you can. You just need to take things out of context, or take some conversational bit of fluff and pretend it was the root of all intent. You are so not funny from the standpoint of sarcasm.

Lambert, why are you getting so upset over this faux pas of the President?  It's not like this is the first.  It certainly won't be the last.

Donald Trump is simply not the brightest guy on the block.  He brags to high heaven what a genius he is, and how he aced a dementia test, but he really isn't very smart.  That's one reason he has to bully anyone who disagrees with him.  Too many people mentioning that the emperor has no clothes, and the people might start noticing his junk. :)

Donald is, at best, of middling intelligence.  He is going to say stuff like "it's the wettest from the standpoint of water."  ::)  If you haven't learned to accept it by now, you'd better just hide for the next few years.  Because he's only going to get worse.  Hopefully from the comfort of a porch at Mar-a-Largo. :)

But if Biden had said the exact same words, Lambert would be posting it and telling is it is part of the growing pile of evidence that he has dementia.

The Thin blue line flag has no association with racism, hatred or bigotry, It’s a flag to show support for law enforcement—no politics involved.

To clarify, its cool to change the colors of the flag to support law enforcement but unpatriotic to kneel during the national anthem to raise awareness of racial injustices?

Is there a rule book somewhere of what's okay? Because I've always thought of kneeling as a respectful gesture as well, maybe that's the religious prayer upbringing.

You might claim that when you use of the flag, you make no association with fascism, but clearly, many, many people do.

And many people are quite unaware of their own fascist tendencies and refuse to countenance any suggestion otherwise.

If you doubt that the flag does carry some of those associations, just google "Thin blue line flag racism hatred bigotry".  And then read the articles you disagree with.

They won't convince you, but they will prove that those associations exist.

If it's not Red White and Blue it's not the American flag.

so then Trump was not flying an official American flag at one of his rallies?   Sounds pretty un American to me for a guy running for President.  Just imagine if Obama had had a rally with out an official American flag?

... and not just no official American flag, but the flag of some other, not-American organization...

But opening that door is futile.  What if Obama had a secret Chinese bank account from which he personally withdrew 15 million dollars?  What if Obama owed 400 million dollars to persons unknown?  What if he threatened world leaders in order to convince them to support his re-election?

I was not there so I was not assuming anything. I was asking.

If had only the one flag that is more problematic to me then if had a normal flag and some other flag. The other flag might still be an issue, but not having a normal flag would be more of an issue.

Didn't you bother to look at the image from Lloyd Perna? USA flags are there. However; go back to the Democrat Convention and try to find a flag anywhere.

From the link to the picture Lambert posted it certainly looks like he won that round not to mention look at the audience. Were all of their little American flags confiscated at the door or what? And for the Biden video, are THAT many American flags really necessary? It looks like overcompensation. I feel for the people who had to gather up all those flags from all over the building or maybe it took the flags from several buildings and then afterwards they had to take them all back where they got them again.

Whoa.  Scott Atlas, Trump's pet doctor, is now working directly with the propaganda arm of the Russian government.

Quote
White House pandemic adviser appears on Russian state media, dismisses predictions about Covid-19 deaths in US

White House pandemic adviser Dr. Scott Atlas gave an extensive interview to RT, the Kremlin-controlled state media network in which he asserted coronavirus lockdowns “are killing people,” attacked public health experts and dismissed models predicting hundreds of thousands more pandemic deaths in the US.

Atlas gave the interview via satellite from the White House grounds, according to the footage. He said the pandemic is improving in the US, even as daily case counts and death counts hit new records for the pandemic as a whole.

That's strange, Here is the official set: https://ca-times.brightspotcdn.com/dims4/default/af10f8c/2147483647/strip/true/crop/2048x1152+0+89/resize/1200x675!/quality/90/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fcalifornia-times-brightspot.s3.amazonaws.com%2F91%2F41%2F85e5e796ec885505c141dadfd843%2Fla-1469670166-snap-photo

The flags appeared after FoxNews commented on their lack. Apples and cinder blocks.

What does a picture from the 2016 Democratic National Convention have to do with whether the 2020 National Convention have any flags?  ???

You might claim that when you use of the flag, you make no association with fascism, but clearly, many, many people do.

And many people are quite unaware of their own fascist tendencies and refuse to countenance any suggestion otherwise.

Simpler take: People want to claim American Law Enforcement is a collective of fascists who are conspiring to keep people of color of down. Even the officers who are persons of color are in on it.

So anyone who shows support for law enforcement by flying a "thin blue line flag" to show support for law enforcement is showing support for fascism.

To further augment this, as I didn't remeber it until the editing window expired:

Ever notice all of that ACAB graffiti that was spray painted all over Seattle's CHAZ/CHOP, or on the Portland Federal Building? Or in Kensoha, and many of the other parts of the country where rioting has occured?

TheDemon,

If you look at the picture in that link, where Michelle Obama is speaking, in the upper left hand corner there are 2 places where it says DNC 2016. So the picture that William posted as proof that there were no flags at the current convention is not proof of such.  I think you would call it fake news.

They're used to it by now, they think he's telling the truth, and most importantly he's been putting their judges in place. If we were going to swing them it would have happened a while ago. They are who they are.

But he is telling the truth. In MIchigan, we have poll watchers who were not allowed to watch. After the voting leveled off with Trump a clear 100,000 votes in the lead, The Democrats made a dump of 138,000 Democrat votes. In Arizona, our poll watchers were kept hundreds of feet away from the counting, and when the poll watchers noted the law stated they had to be allowed to watch the counting, the officials said they could use binoculars. The dumping of just enough suspicious ballots after all were supposed to be accounted for seems to be the 2020 strategy. All ballots counted after restraining the poll watchers must be invalidated. This Democrat plan was designed with malice aforethought, and is not just mail-in ballots coming in late.

Historians are coming out of the woodwork with documented court cases showing democrat operatives sent to jail, one election after another - in the face of democrat apologists saying there is no evidence of vote-scamming.

I just read about that.  85 poll watches inside, and they couldn't fit anymore in.  So the 30 or so outside started chanting "Stop the count!  Stop the count!"  ::)

Credentialed poll watchers, trained by the parties, had all the access allowed by law. Random self declared poll watchers don't count, and they have no business inside a polling place.

Is anyone surprised lambert got it wrong again?

I just heard Rudy Guiliani on the radio complaining that the poll watchers were not allowed to compare the signatures for themselves on the mail-in ballots. 

Were the pool watchers hovering over peoples shoulders while they walked in and registered to make sure the signatures matched?
I can understand the post-mark thing, if that is what the law is.  But *poll watchers* checking signatures?
